I would not replace any of Ms. Hepburn's wins. If were up to me she would have all 12 Oscars. No one, not even that Meryl girl has Ms. Hepburn's body of work. Remember she won three of her Oscars after the age of 60. When I hear today's actresses speak about the lack of strong roles for older women........I say to myself get over your vanity issues and botox injections and there are still plenty of wonderful roles for older actresses. Okay, I'm off the soap box.
If I could add one more it would be for....... Drame -- Long Days Journey into Night Comedy - The Philadelphia Story
(I just got up to get a drink, and in the process somewhere along the way, accidentally smashed my ankle on a drawer. I'm in agony right now)
Alice Adam's Bringing Up Baby (Cary too) The Philadelphia Story Woman Of The Year Adam's Rib The African Queen (although that would mean stealing it from Vivien Leigh for A Streetcar Named Desire...in which, she was brilliant - her best performance) Suddenly, Last Summer Long Day's Journey Into Night

She really should have tied with Vivling for TAQ. Rose Sayer is one of the most iconic characters in the history of film and it would've been nice for her to get and Oscar for it. Such hard work everybody did while in Africa. OMG HOLLER TO SV FOR THE MERYL COMMENT.
and........I would give Kath 8365 oscars and a million kisses. so, basically every film she ever made. Well, maybe not Spitfire. ;-)
I haven't seen Streetcar (shame on me) but I read somewhere that Spencer called Vivien's Blanche a warmed over Scarlett O'Hara and that Kate should have gotten the Oscar. How does everyone feel about that statement?

Hmm, when did ST say that? Because that just made me warm all over. But hi, Spence was with Kath and probably would have wanted her to win regardless. However, there is that rather mean quote about Bergman winning over Kath's Lizzie for Anastasia........he just called 'em as he saw them, I guess.
ASND is a TERRIFIC movie and Vivien deserved it. Kate did that year, too. I love them both. Go see ASND right away Shaunerz!!
Love Spencer for that reply Saw Streetcar once and had to turn it of. Thought, must be a die hard fan to take that movie. Vivien was a great actress. Can't remember seeing something were see had the warmth and familiar thing. Very different from Kate. With Kate you often felt she said something even though you couldn't put you finger on it.
Hmmm more Oscars - what a question, for all of her films of course and Emmy's as well. And the Tony for Coco. Yea
Judy: All has changed on the Proboard....Not sure my reply got posted. Anyway, thanks for the notice, Evelien. I'm unable to access it. I can watch the clip of the woman flipping through the Kate books and talking about fashion - one of which is Rebel Chic :-)

CFK: So we all heard about Betty Bacall, I guess? Pretty rotten news, especially following so closely on Robin Williams. What a lousy week. Watched To Have and Have Not as tribute tonight.

Fran: I think the problem with actresses such as Bette Davis and Joan Crawford was that they played SEX SYMBOLS and did woman movies. They were sexy in their day and were the main love interests in the movie. When they got older those woman type movies were dead

Fran: Bette Davis made very different movies from Katherine Hepburn Hepburn. Bette was sexy. So was Crawford. They made woman type movies. Hepburn was the masculine feminist. When their looks went, so did their careers. Hepburn was never that type.

Angela: Personally, I like Bette Davis best she was "a woman for all season" she didn't mince words she did the role without having to apologize for creativity she musters to do the work. Also, she could look different without worrying about her appearance.

Angela: Personally, I felt Bette Davis was the "woman for all seasons" since she used all her creativity to make her artwork. As for Katherine she seems to sound the same - her voice didn't change. Granted she was good in Shakespeare which I give credit.

SJS: Bette had a mostly latent tendency to ham, and she admitted it. She really appreciated a director who could get her to tone it down. She lost respect for a director who would let her get away with it. But she took chances that most actresses wouldn't.
